I offer several trip options.  I call the Mckenzie and Willamette rivers home and spend most of my time there.  Trout fishing on the Mckenzie and Steelhead on the Willamette are my two most popular trips.  I love doing smallmouth bass trips on the Umpqua.  My newest passion in the last 5 years is trolling for Salmon in our coastal bays, most notably the Umpqua and Siuslaw.  I strive to learn new rivers each year.  Ask me any questions!  And please explore my website, lots of good info.

Mckenzie Tackle Guide Service

Becharof Lodge
There are many ways to remove salmon eggs for curing them in preparation to fish with. This is one approach that works well when the skeins are big and mature. The great thing about this method, all the belly meat is retained in one piece which makes for great smoking. Any meat left on the upper spine, due to the bulging belly caused by the big skeins, can either be scraped from the spine with a spoon, then quick-fried, or it can be left on the spine and smoked, once all internal organs, tail and head are removed. We still have a few openings for some of Alaska's best silver salmon fishing, August 4-10 & 11-17, 2018. We'd love to have you as our guest in remote Alaska. Drop us a note if interested, and learn more about what we have to offer at, becharof.com/fishing-trips/

Looks like quite a few Goddard caddis as well.

I know where you filmed this and those fish never really get the chance to see an angler

One of my favorite riffles

Big old whitey, not as pretty as the trout you caught.

I’d have to agree with Aaron damn fine fishing in that riffle

Awe, I have a good memory of fishing here with my brother and husband a few years ago.

Dandy day

Hmm new ideasShrimp and eggs are steelhead favorites. Meanwhile, mixing them in a wet brine is bound for angling success. Duane Inglin steps out of The Bait Lab to reveal this new go-to steelhead egg cure as the FireBlog! heads to the West Coast!
